Stop the Senseless Killing of Gentle Giraffes

Target: Barbara Creecy, Minister of Forestry, Fisheries, and the Environment of South Africa

Goal: Protect giraffes from grisly slaughter.

In Africa, about three hundred giraffes are slaughtered every year, but the actual number might be much higher. Since the 1980s, the giraffe population decreased from over 155,000 animals to only 111,000. Today, giraffes are listed as a vulnerable species, with trophy hunting playing a major role in the decline.

Although giraffes are threatened by extinction, people continue to hunt and kill them for pleasure. Hunters claim to keep the environment in balance by killing countless animals, never acknowledging that humans should not interfere with nature. Furthermore, most hunters target the strongest animals of a species, with devastating effects on their gene pool.

Not only are these precious animals viciously killed for trophies, but many of them are also killed for the fashion industry to create products like boots, pillows, jackets, and book covers.

Trophy hunting is a vile sport, for which countless animals have to give their lives. Sign this petition to banish hunting giraffes.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Barbara Creecy,

As the Minister of Forestry, Fisheries, and the Environment of South Africa, you must protect vulnerable animal species in your country. Many people travel to Africa for only one reason: to hunt animals. Especially rare species are popular to fulfill a hunter’s need for glory.

Animals that are killed during the hunt puts the population of the species in danger. Unless more efforts are made to protect them, the number of giraffes will continue to decline even further towards extinction.

You must utilize the power that your position has granted you to preserve vulnerable species on our planet. Please implement protections for giraffes, and ban giraffe hunting altogether.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    It is time the vile and evil lowlife animal torturing murdering Trophy Hunters and Poachers were hunted down and tortured to death. Kill them all.

  8. This EXTREME ENVIRONMENTAL CRIME MUST STOP. YOUR OBLIGATION IS TO STOP THIS ATROCITY PERPETRATED BY MENTALLY-SICK, PSYCHOPATHIC AND SADISTIC HUMANS WITH NO RESPECT FOR THE EARTH’S BEAUTY AND DIVERSITY!
    GREED SHALL NOT DESTROY OUR PLANET AND PRECIOUS ANIMALS LIVING HERE!’
    GIRAFFES ARE NOT SOUTH AFRICA’S PROPERTY. GIRAFFES ARE THE LEGACY AND HERITAGE OF OUR ENTIRE PLANET AND ALL PEOPLE LIVING HERE. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO PROMOTE A DISGUSTING AND SICKENING ENVIRONMENTAL CRIME IN THE NAME OF GREED AND ALLOW MENTALLY-DERANGED HUMAN MONSTERS TO SHOOT GIRAFFES TO EXTINCTION!
    SHAME SHAME SHAME AND DISGRACE ON SOUTH-AFRICA, THE COUNTRY OF BRAINLESS ANIMAL-ABUSERS AND KILLERS!

  9. Trophy Hunters should be outlawed in every single country around the globe. This is insanity to hunt and kill any creature, especially endangered species. I have never understood why people with money have to do this to these wonderful animals. Some humans are the worst living creatures and should be jailed for these atrocities.

  10. How I loathe Hunters — they should be ASHAMED of themselves — they get JOY from KILLING Giraffes — something is VERY WRONG — SHUT DOWN these despicable HUNTS — FOREVER — there is NO EVENT more unconscionably cruel, depraved, sadistic, torturous, heinous, hateful than Trophy HUNTING — no self-respecting, sane, rational, compassionate Human would EVER engage in such suffering and death of an innocent, vulnerable Animal who, by the way, is always at our mercy — FOR WHAT PURPOSE, do they kill? —— STOP justifying their murders with label, “for conservation” — it is NOT TRUE — Hunters kill for ENTERTAINMENT — Let our GIRAFFES live — Trophy HUNTING must be OBLITERATED off the face of the earth FOREVER.

  11. There is nothing more cowardly than trophy hunting! Killing innocent animals from a safe distance with a high powered rifle…yeah, that’s brave…pathetic cowards!!
